Thanksgiving Beach Trip

We spent Thanksgiving at Walker's parent's beach house at Kiawah Island in South Carolina. We had a great week! My mom came for the first part of the week. Joe and Helen Bruner and the Oglesbys spent the last part of the week with us! The weather was fabulous and was really warm at the beginning of the week! Murphy was great in the car and with all the changes to his routine. He loved Dee Dee and Dibs' house and can't wait to go back! Sunset the first night we got there- it was a little chilly when the sun went down!
Murphy laughed at his Daddy the whole way down to the beach!
Taking a break during "tummy time"
Relaxing in the hammock with Daddy
Chillin' in his shades- I can't believe he actually liked wearing them!
Strolling on the beach with LinLin
Beach baby!

Whew! This beach thing is wearing me out!
Bouncing while I watch everyone in the kitchen!

Fun in my Bumbo seat

"This is interesting... I don't know if I'm going to like this!" "Okay, it's not so bad. At least Daddy seems entertained!"
"I've had enough-this is getting boring!"
"Well, I slept on it, and now that I have the hang of it, I guess I might like this seat after all! (Maybe now she'll stop taking my picture!)

My Noggin

During the head check part of Murphy's check-up, the doctor pointed out that he seemed to prefer his right side. Poor Murphy! Now he has to do head exercises to encourage him to turn to his left side on his own. (We were getting a little flat on that side!) I guess all the weight from his big noggin made his head a bit mis-shapen! He is extra large in the noggin area- being in the 42% in head circumfence, while his little body is 11% in weight and 4% in height. Something had to hold that big brain! At least that's what we're telling him! Here are some fun pics of Murphy working hard to improve his left side!:) This pic really showcases the XL noggin- he wears 0-3 months in clothes, but 3-6 in hats! :)
Working with mommy- This is fun, but only for a short time!
Sleeping on my right side with my daddy
I really liked Kimber- she was so funny I didn't even notice we were working those neck muscles!
"Steve Holt!" Those of you who have seen all the episodes of Arrested Development will know what I'm talking about! (hehehe, Ang!)

Happy Halloween!

Murphy with Whitney-he loves her and her crazy glasses!!
We had a great Halloween! We went to the Pope's house in Forestbrook to eat chili and hotdogs! This has been a Halloween tradition for several years now and it was fun to finally have a trick-or-treater! We took Murphy out in his stroller to a few houses! He didn't like the puppy hood on his costume, so I put his chipmunk hat on him! He liked the pumpkin PJ's best!
Murphy having fun with the big kids!
Miss Ann holding Murphy- He loved being passed around by all the pretty girls!
We had to take a quick family picture before he got out of the puppy/chipmunk outfit!

"Smurph" with Julieanne and Macy-that's what they love to call him!:)
He looks like he wants some candy!
Winding down after an exciting night!
